WASHINGTON, D.C. – Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, the organization’s Pastoral Team and staff head home today refocused and re-energized following three days of non-stop pro-life activism surrounding the March for Life.
“These days in Washington, and in San Francisco for the Walk for Life West Coast, are so important, not only to demonstrate to the world that we will never stop fighting for the unborn until each and every one of them is safe, but because they also give us an opportunity to meet and strategize with people who share our passion and commitment.”
Priests for Life was represented at most of the events that took place from Jan. 21 to 23, including . . .
• March for Life Exhibit
• March for Life Youth Rally
• The Law of Life Summit
• Students for Life Conference
• Mass for Pro-Life Leaders at the Blessed John Paul Shrine
• Mass at the National Shrine Basilica of the Immaculate Conception
• National Memorial for the Pre-Born and Their Mothers and Fathers
• Pro-Life Bloggers Conference
• Silent No More gathering at the U.S. Supreme Court
• “Babies Go To Congress” Dinner
• March for Life Rose Dinner
“I am amazed and thankful every year that hundreds of thousands of people from every walk of life can find the time and the resources to come to the March and fight for the babies,” Father Pavone said. “At Priests for Life, we’ve already begun planning for next year’s March, which will mark the 40th anniversary of the Roe vs. Wade decision. But I have no doubt, none whatsoever, that we will end abortion and return a culture of life to this wounded land.”
Father Pavone added, “In the days ahead, Priests for Life will provide more details of its 2012 initiatives that were announced at the March.”
